Serendipity Quilt Store

Yesterday, the sun was shy at first, letting the clouds fool us into thinking we'd better change our plans for the day. Before I could even think about alternate activities, boys and husband were already at the beach. Realizing this would be my only opportunity, I quickly left to visit my favorite quilt store in Delaware: Serendipity.

For the last two years, I have been following their adventures as they built and finally moved into a new location in September 2011, just a hop and a skip away from their previous spot. With 1,800 sq ft and over 3,000 bolts of tempting fabric, I felt I had arrived in heaven. Serendipity features such popular lines as Hoffman, Timeless Treasures, Moda, P&B, Marcus Bros., WindhamBernatex, Dear Stella, Henry Glass, Maywood, Andover, Michael Miller, Robert Kaufman, and more. I wandered through the store for ONLY two and a half hours, ignoring the impatient attempts from my iPhone to bring me back to earth.

Take a look at the pictures below: eye candy all around. The store is gorgeous!

Lots of Sue Spargo's patterns, assorted wool kits, and samples.

Beautiful quilt samples by store owner Kathy Lewis and staff. Extensive collection of batiks.

Very bright store with plenty of room to walk around displays.

The cutest novelty and baby fabrics!

Check out this cool way to display their samples: Finished wood with special nails installed close to the ceiling allow staff to easily clip and hang quilts.

While I was at the store, I noticed these two ladies 'carting' bolts and bolts of fabric to the cutting tables. After about one hour, their tab came to $3,620!!! I called my husband and asked if I could spend the same amount. "No way", he said. I decided then that anything I spent BELOW that would be approved!!! When he sees the credit card bill he will be relieved I did not spend that much, and any complaints on his part will be met with: "See how much money I saved you?" :-)

Gotta go now. More on my purchases later! Enjoy the 4th of July!
